“Beautiful place, fabulous people.”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Only stayed for a week and loved every minute.
The house is amazing. Clean, spacious, all mod cons and located in a beautiful area.
The local people are warm and friendly and fun to be around.
Joy and John couldn't do enough for us, helping with trips or just giving advice on what's happening when and were, thanks a million, it was awesome.

Can't say enough good things about the whole experience, would highly recommend. And I speak very little French.

“Heavenly retreat with great pool and authentic house - LOVED IT”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The farmhouse is absolutely faultless. It is very spacious and completely spotless with large authentically french bedrooms and every amenity you could wish for, Joy and John welcomed us with open arms and provided lots of information about the surrounding area. The grounds are IDYLLIC and whilst lying by the pool (on very comfortable loungers) all we could hear were birds and other wild life. We spent out evenings playing board games (lots to choose from) and sitting around the large outside table after cooking in the extremely well equipped kitchen. There is a small country pub 5 minutes walk from the house which also did fish and chip tuesdays which was a nice touch. There is a DVD player and english tv which was a bonus for the evenings after a day out, We will DEFINITELY be returning to this beautiful house!

“Idyllic country spot surrounded by nature, with good home comforts and a lovely pool”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fab holiday with glorious sunshine so the pool was in good use every day. The gite is lovely throughout with everything you want in a holiday home, especially the kitchen which is very well equipped and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking there - not something I usually bother with when away from home. Joy and John are excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Learned a lot about chickens, who would have thought they would eat soooo much lettuce?! Peaceful, relaxing, restorative holiday. Marvellous.
